Genre: Women’s Fiction
Release Date: July 11, 2020
A quirky character in her own colorful world. A man who struggles to see beyond black and white. With heartbreak and healing, A Little Pill Called Love is just the prescription for a little laughter, twists to heal, and a love that demands to be heard.
Rylie Marshall has blue, green, yellow, and a mixture of pills that made her “normal.” But her idea of normal and what her mother or society wanted her to be never seemed to match up.
She lives day-by-day in a fantasy land within her own troubled head and books. Reading was her escape whenever even her head denied her such a haven. So, how was she to know that one day, sitting on the beach, a book would show her the one thing she didn’t have, but might change her life…
Mike Newport had white, yellow, and striped pills that made him capable of being one of the most cut-throat corporate marketing advisers his clients could have. Not even a life-changing tragedy could slow him down.
His days and most nights were spent with his head buried in flow charts, graphs, and spreadsheets. Busy was the best way–the heart could easily be ignored as it was dying inside his chest.
The last thing he needed was a vacation, but how was he to know that a carefree girl, playing in the waves and talking to the birds might give him the one thing he had been avoiding…
From bestselling author Jas T. Ward comes a touching, quirky, fun, and gritty read—A Little Pill Called Love, rebranded, edited, and published by Hot Tree Publishing.
This was a
quick, easy read with interesting characters and a different kind of love story. It was a compelling read but I always find that I enjoy this author’s writing and storytelling. For me, it took a suspension in believability for parts of the story. I really like Riley and her bubbly personality when she was in her element. It was easy to figure out what was going with her mother and it was tragic. Mike was a harder sell for me. Sure, he had a traumatic past but he was a highly intelligent professional so his ready acceptance of Riley was interesting. I guess he just needed a impactful meeting with a sweet woman to get him over his daily drudgery. I did love Riley’s reading material and her hope that she would get her Knight and a HEA. All in all this was a feel-good romance with likable characters in Riley and Mikey with some tragic elements but with a wonderful HEA. Beautiful cover!
Welcome to my worlds, take a seat, get to know me and the characters and I assure you… You’ll be glad you did.” ~Jas T Ward
